Episode #135:

 Lorena James on Davidson College: Environmental Studies, Ecopreneur, and Passion for China.

Lorena James is a graduate of Davidson College with a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Social Science and Chinese Studies.

COVID has upended all our lives.

College students had to trade-in their summer plans for something less.

Not Lorena James.

Lorena, then a rising senior, started her second startup from home.

She learned to make eco-friendly Shampoo bars and other hair care products.

Lorena then created plastic-free packaging for those products. 

From personal experience, she knew that, in China, hair care products for black women are very pricey.

Lorena incubated this startup, virtually,  at the University of Buffalo.

She called it 4ever Curly!

No pandemic was going to lockdown her entrepreneurial spirit.

 In the Podcast with Lorena James, we discussed this and other topics: 

  • Choosing Davidson College
  • Majoring in Environmental Social Science
  • Being an Ecopreneur
  • Study Abroad in China
  • Advice to Aspirants

If you are college-bound, this Podcast is a must listen to be inspired and motivated about your own future.
